Practically everyone I know in their late teens and early twenties appreciates at least one show on Adult Swim, and the music videos they broadcast are consistently worthy selections.

Coolness is the supreme value by which networks and products are to be judged when you’re aiming for this demographic. And I’m sorry, MTV, but these days it seems that Adult Swim is a cooler kid than you are.
